“Wielkie marzenia” by Wechterowicz and Ignerska in Hungarian with support from the Book Institute

A translation of the children's book Wielkie marzenia (“Great Dreams”) by Przemysław Wechterowicz and Marta Ignerska has been published in Hungary. The publication of the book translated by Márta Éles was supported by the Book Institute under the ©POLAND Translation Programme.

Nagy álmok, as reads the Hungarian translation of the book, was published by the Diófa Books publishing house in Hungary.

Published in a large format, this book about big dreams consists of a witty and imaginative text by Przemysław Wechterowicz and - most importantly - excellent illustrations by Marta Ignerska. In Great Dreams, it is the illustrations that tell most of the stories that bind the text together. What are they about? About, among others, The Carpet, who would very much like to fly to Mars, or The Fire, who dreams of becoming a fireman...
